This enchanting winter train ride was ranked among the most beautiful in all of North America and it will take you from Seattle to the snow-covered Canadian Rockies.

Travel + Leisure released the ranking which included this Amtrak train route from Seattle to Alberta, with a few stops in Vancouver, Banff, Jasper and Calgary, of course.

The nine-day trip is called the "Seattle and the Canadian Rockies Winter Discovery" and it looks so magical, that it's almost as if it was plucked out of a scene from the Polar Express movie.

It was ranked fifth on the list, and not only provides stunning views of the Canadian Rockies, but it also includes a gondola ride up to the top of Sulphur Mountain as well as, a winter wildlife tour in Jasper National Park.

To secure your spot on one of these mesmerizing train routes, you can book a ticket online through Amtrak Vacations. However, tickets do cost a pretty penny at $1,599 per person, but the scenery looks worth it.
